However, anything done in large-corporation  America is done with the bottom line in sight.  I doubt this would happen in Berkley.

Playing to the local clientele.

Like I said, that's what makes it interesting.  I'm in a FAR-left, like make Pelosi look like a member of the John Birch Society, town.  To the point where I overheard a woman say, right after the election, "My daughter wanted to wear her Hillary shirt, but is afraid to, because of all those gun owners out there."  

The % of cars with "Coexist" and "War is not the Answer" bumper stickers is roughly equivalent to the percentage of white people in the town (about 95% white bread)  .

Damn I hope my local lowes does that.
Other than the promotion points it'd be the only perk I ever got for my enemy marksmanship badge.
Hell the PH plates for my Camaro even cost me more than regular plates.

Edit: not that I demand any perks-but it would be cool.
How about Combat Infantry parking spots?

Crazy they charge you more you get a discounted charge here for Purple heart.

The worst spots are the ones for pregnant women.  Make them walk to keep that baby fat off.  It's not as if you can't control whether you're pregnant or not.
God forbid we prioritize pregnant women.
First time we went to a Baby's R Us when my wife was pregnant I parked at the far end of the parking lot (as is my norm).

My wife asked "Why didn't you park in the Expectant Mother spot right next to the door?"

Me: "I'm not pregnant"

Local Lowe's in Alabama did it about 6 months ago. They actually did 9 spots of 3,3 and 3 spots closest to the front door.

We had a guy catch bullet fragments 3" from his dick that didn't get a purple heart.  CO said that since the fragments came from a bullet that hit the vest of the IA next to him, it wasn't worth the write up.

They've been doing that for a while around here.

Last time I went, there was a Harley Wide Glide with PH plate parked.

I hope they used a regular "Handicapped" space for it.  

There are way too may of those around here . . . and way, way too many healthy drivers with handicapped stickers who park close and hop out and walk easily into stores.

There is abuse of the system but to be fair there are many heart and other medical conditions where the person looks and acts healthy but they are  very much limited in the amount of walking they can do.

My home depot has parking for pros and for veterans. It actually pisses me off a little bit. They are in fact the best parking spots. I'm not a pro or a vet.

I figure none of it is legally enforceable.

And I'm perfectly happy that's the case.  

Even if there's no one in it, it's a reminder of the cost of doing business.
